Three 100% cotton cottage floral prints, some appear to have been "shabby-chic'd" by the original owner using natural overdye techniques (what a crafter!). The piecing has been completed by durable methods here in the studio. It has also been washed and dried to test the dye permanence. This fabric was acquired from an estate of a woman who had a collection of wonderful textiles. Stay tuned for more pieces making creative use of these estate finds.

About every Signature Top:
National Picnic Signature Tops thrive on creative pairings of new fabrics each season, but it's the fit that is just as special. Not a generic fit—they have been thoughtfully designed to consider women's figures, pleasing in a diverse range of body shapes and sizes.
It's designed to drape loosely over the torso when worn true to size, and not get stuck on the hips. Not meant to fit snugly; however, some women order a size down to show more curves through the bust area. Even then, it will still remain somewhat loose-fitting. Woven sleeves can only size down so much (they don't stretch)—so if tight is how you roll, this is not the top for you.
Thanks for loving National Picnic Signature Tops! Please read each listing for each tee's "personality". Fabric combinations vary in weight, drape or hand. The variations are intentional, adding interest and fun to the most popular style we make.
